Eimeo Beach is sheltered and picturesque, a popular choice for swimming. During the summer months the beach is patrolled by lifeguards. The soft sand is paralleled by an esplanade park with a children’s playground and barbecue facilities, the perfect location for a pretty beachside picnic.
Before reaching Eimeo Beach, visitors will pass under a canopy of old Mango trees, planted by early Mackay pioneer, Jeremiah Armitage, in the 1880s. The canopy on Mango Avenue, now a heritage-listed attraction, guides visitors to a popular hotel, known as the pub with the “million dollar view.” It is a spectacular location to enjoy coffee and cake, or a cool beer with a meal while gazing upon the coastal vista.
